What is

Curriculum Mapping

Curriculum Mapping is a technique that involves the process of indexing an entire curriculum. It entails creating a diagram that spots redundancies in the curriculum as well as academic gaps. By identifying these issues, the mapping process can improve the course’s effectiveness and coherence. The map should include all of the techniques and instructional materials the instructor will use in the course. 

Curriculum Mapping refers to the way instructors align a course’s content with what the content students need to learn. Ideally, a coherent curriculum will be organized and free of repetition. A good curriculum should make it easier for students to learn the subject and avoid any academic gaps. By mapping out the curriculum, instructors can make sure that their class meets the school’s expectations for that grade level and subject. While the mapping process used to occur on paper, there are now software programs, apps and spreadsheets that instructors can use.
